A U.S. Representative from central Illinois believes Obamacare is on a course heading towards collapse, and it could be up to Congress to get it back on the right track.

U.S. Representative Darin LaHood was featured on WLDS’ AM Conversation this morning, where he talked about the future of health care and shared his thoughts on President Trump’s federal budget outline.

LaHood says when it comes to the Affordable Care Act, he believes its failure is inevitable without congressional action.

LaHood says that while certain aspects of Obamacare have been beneficial, he explains the how his bill could improve upon the current system.

With President Trump releasing a $1.1 trillion-dollar federal budget outline on Thursday, LaHood is concerned about potential cuts to certain areas, but is satisfied with Trump’s overall approach.
